Who knew Cuba Gooding, Jr. was a die-hard Young Thug fan?

The star of The People Vs. O.J. Simpson apparently can't get enough of Thugger. According to Complex, Gooding got into a funny Instagram exchange months ago with users who were commenting on one of Young Thug's posts. Let's just say if you're gonna criticize Young Thug--don't let Cuba Gooding, Jr. hear you.

"How dare you insult Thugga. I was in Snow Dogs and won't stand for this s---," Cuba wrote at the time. After his taste and enthusiasm were mocked, the Oscar winner doubled down, heralding Thug's music as greater than the Beatles and daring anyone to diss the rapper again.

"Fam, I SWEAR you finna make me catch a body. First off: Thug is an amazing rapper on a pure technical level, as well as being a great lyracist and a stone cold G."

We can't wait to get Cuba's take on the Thug vs. Plies beef. Or the Thug vs. Game beef. Or the Thug vs. Future beef.

We really just want to hear him talk about Young Thug, really.

Meanwhile, Gooding has to be riding high. The People Vs. O.J. Simpson was a bonafide hit and is being heralded as one of the television events of the year. And, of course, Young Thug's Slime Season 3 dropped in March. So Cuba should be a happy guy right now.

But then again--when is Cuba Gooding, Jr. not happy?
